#328 on LoTW with K1B


Posted: February 4th, 2016 under LoTW.

k1b_qsl This confirmation for KH1 (Baker and Howland) surely came as a surprise. The contacts were made back in 2002 and they used the callsign K1B. It does however seem to me that only parts of the log was uploaded. Only my SSB contacts were confirmed, not the CW contacts. That might be because they had different manager for CW and SSB. Anyway, that was my #328 on LoTW. It only goes to show that sometimes you can expect the unexpected.

I didn’t work too many contacts last year, but I did get 56% of those qsoes confirmed via LoTW, so that is not too bad. These numbers are from January 14th.

KMLmaker by LA8AJA


Posted: January 7th, 2016 under Software.

kml_maker_example As I mentioned in a previous post, I have done some php-programming for my own amusement. KMLmaker is one of the things I have made. It’s nothing new or revolutionary, but it’s just my implementation of it.

It is a page that takes your adif-file for input. It then extracts all the contacts on the band you specify. If you have specified a maidenhead locator in the contact, the program will then use that to calculate the geographical position of the contact and then draw a line between that point and your homeqth. The program will make a kml-file for use in Google Earth to display your contacts. You can also specify a date-range if you wish.

Hamradio Deluxe has this function implemented, but I do not use this program, and I don’t want to have a demo-version installed just for this purpose. This is more or less the same function, but tweaked a little bit to my liking.

You can find KMLmaker here: http://la8aja.com/kmlmaker
